The Fox hit drama series could return for its sixth season, star Dominic Purcell said on Instagram on Monday.
Purcell, who plays Lincoln Burrows, shared a selfie on Instagram to mysteriously reveal the news as he discussed a series of rumors.
Purcell talked about reasons people may think that the drama series will not return for a sixth series.
“Rumor number 1. I’m old. Yes. I’m 50…..Rumor number 2. I’m bald. No I have a full head of hair; the people demand I shave it. Rumor number 3, Will season pb 6 happen. Yes…..Rumor number 4. Do I like humans? No. Not on mass. Definitely not,” he wrote on IG.
Prison Break originally aired four seasons from 2005 to 2009, followed by the TV film called The Final Break. In 2016, Fox revived the series for a fifth season, which premiered the following year.
The show follows Lincoln Burrows (Purcell) as he devises a plan to help his brother Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) escape from prison after being sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit. Sarah Wayne Callis, Amori Nolasco, Robert Kneper and Paul Adelstein are also in the cast.
In August 2019, Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier said a sixth season of Prison Break was not planned but it is clear it is now in motion.
